Radon - What is it and Why is it a concern?
Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uraninum in soil and rock. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless and can only be detected by specialized tests. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, such as cracks in the foundation, small openings around pipes and sump pits.
